Telomeres generally shorten with age. An accelerated shortening of the telomeres has been linked to several age-related disorders. We hypothesized that the relative length of telomeres could discriminate between patients with late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VaD). A quantitative real-time PCR method was used to calculate the(More)
When developing a genotyping assay by Pyrosequencing(trade mark) technology for the RFC1 (SLC19A1) c.80G>A polymorphism (rs1051266), unequal peak heights in the pyrograms were observed, probably due to unequal amplification of the mutated and wild-type alleles. This rarely occurring problem could potentially render assignment of heterozygous genotypes(More)
DNA methylation of CpG sites in promoter regions of several cancer related genes, such as O6-MGMT, hMLH1, p14ARF, p16INK4a, RASSF1A and APC1A, has been actively explored recently. Much of the data has been obtained using a variation of an allele-specific PCR assay known as methylation specific PCR. This technique is objectionable for a number of(More)
